In the trial of poverty, a sensational information has come to light in our country. Already, when the topic of poor countries in the world comes up, the names of several countries like South Africa, Somalia, and Nigeria come up first. But, you will be surprised to know that India has faced so much misery in the last few years that we have left those countries behind in terms of poverty. Until now, Nigeria was thought to be home to the poorest people in the world. But now India has come to that list. That is, India currently has the most poor people in the world.
